Cardiovascular Biomaterials 2 (SIG)

Timeslot: Thursday, April 28, 2022 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm
Room: Kent A-C, 4th Floor


Cardiovascular therapies harness biomaterials for optimizing biocompatibility, releasing drugs and as scaffolds for tissue regeneration. The session will provide a forum for research on the development and assessment of cardiovascular biomaterial applications across this entire spectrum.


Abstracts will be available for download on April 27, 2022.
